Hey there,

I'm completely new to Java (hence the title) and I'm really eager to learn. I learn best by doing, and so I thought I'd start off with a project...

...I know this sounds pretty ambitious, but thats how I like to do things! Anyway, I was interested in making a basic program that would calculate the odds of making a sucessful hand in the popular poker game, Texas Hold'em. For those who don't know the rules, here's a link!

I think that I'm beyond Forum help, so I was wondering if there was anybody out there that could help me outside of the forum (via e-mail or AIM) to help me code this thing.
